“Kitty cat (and human boy stand-in) Tumford Stoutt learns a lesson about rude noises. This Tuesday, Sweet Apple Green is in for a ruckus. Tum beats his drum. He makes bubbles in his dish. He burps and giggles at the table. His parents aren't pleased, but Tum doesn't care. He likes the attention. Then in front of the Sweet Apple Guild, Tum does the unforgivable: toots the patootie trumpet. Mom and Dad put him in timeout. With a little help from readers, Tum learns not all attention is good.” —Kirkus Reviews

This book is a fair lesson learner for how certain noises are not always appropriate. While I can see this as a tool to work with young children I also feel it could have been better.
The lessons seemed glossed over and the learning process way too exaggerated.
The pictures were cute, some funny even. Tumford's expressions give him a great personality. Overall, not a bad book. A child might have some fun with it, but it doesn't seem like it will make the favorite list of any child or parent I know of. However, a parent may embellish on the story some to make it more educationally successful. So, overall, an okay read.
